Error adding printer sometimes

I am running win 2008 R2 as a print server. I have installed all my printers, both 64 and 32 bit and I create a few Group Policies so I can install the printers via GP.  Well, as I've done some testing, the GP installs one printer, but the other two it doesn't.  So when I manually try to install one of the printes, it fails with an error message.  If I cancel and try again to install it, the exact same way, then it works, it installs the printer just fine.  If I delete the printer and try again to install it manually, it fails with the same error message.  Then I again to install it, it works, so it's like this cycle going back and forth, and that's probably why my GP is not being applied and it's not creating the printers.  Any advise of what I can do.  I have attached the screen shots if it helps any?

Can you ping printer by name?
Have you tried using IP number in your testing?
